Once you're done with the lamination and the hot-coating steps of the process, you will need to sand the board to give a perfectly smooth finish.
A complete range of abrasives, in velcro disks and in sheets format, to allow you to perfect your sanding.
From the grain 80 which you will use to rough-hew, or sand boxes, to the finest grains of wet sanding papers, you will necessarily find in this category all abrasives you may need.
Choose the diameter and the foam density of your sanding pad according to the use.
We generally proceed with a big hard pad (8 " - 200mm) on the plane surfaces of the board, and with a small soft pad (6 " - 150mm) for a more precise work on the curved zones or the rails, the softer density of the foam adapting itself to the roundings and avoiding any deformation of your initial shape.
Sanding process will require the use of a rotating sanding machine hand-held with disks (ranging from 600 to 2000 rpm).
The Milwaukee AP12QE sander is perfect for these duties, widely used in the professional surfboard making workshops around the World. Close to 1kg lighter than any of its competitors, it is the perfect tool combine comfort of use and precision work.
With your sanding machine, featuring a polishing plate in genuine sheep skin, and some polish, keep working on the board, in circular movements, until you reach the desired outcome. Use a moderate speed of rotation of the sander, in order to avoid any over-heating. Finally, protect your work with a finish liquid, and a synthetic lustring disk, with a tolerance to higher rpm.
These additional steps will guarantee the best mirror effect you can obtain !
Most of the materials used for the manufacturing of a surfboard are unfortunately toxic and corrosive.
Do not neglect how toxic the can be and protect yourselves ! Safety first !
